Yes2Chess was one of the many interesting projects offered during Innovative Learning week by the University of Edinburgh

Our annual ILW event ‘Yes to Chess 2’ occurred on the 19th February.
International Master Dominik Csiba and FIDE Master Gabriel Petesch gave
lectures to an advanced and beginner’s classes respectively.
Gabe’s lesson revolved around how to get out of the opening safely and
with a playable position, by following the basic opening principles. He
then continued into developing calculation skills when analysing
variations in the middlegame using the candidate moves approach, as well
as learning how to evaluate positions.
